Miami’s real estate market is an ever-changing animal, and nowhere is that more evident than the city’s skyline. As this cycle’s building boom comes to fruition and new towers begin to open, the downtown area’s skyline is bound to start looking a lot different.

Visualhouse, an international marketing and design firm, created a rendering of what Miami might look like 15 years from now. The company cherry picked 11 projects that either have approvals or are already under construction and planted images of the buildings on top of an existing Miami aerial photograph.

“We work with a lot of developers throughout Miami and New York. A lot of people come to us when they work on skyscrapers,” Robert Herrick, Visualhouse’s managing director, told The Real Deal. “Over time, we’re able to depict what the future of cities look like.”

One of the most prominent projects in the rendering is SkyRise Miami – the controversial 1,000-foot observation tower being developed by Jeffrey Berkowitz. If built, the structure would be one of the tallest towers ever erected in Miami. The record currently belongs to the 789-foot Four Seasons that was built in 2003, according to construction data website Emporis.

Here’s a list of all 11 projects included in the rendering. See if you can spot them:
